Star forward Paul George has agreed to a maximum contract extension with the Clippers that will pay him $226 million over the next five years. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski delivered the news on the agreement between George and the Clippers on Thursday.

George, who was traded to the Clippers in the summer of 2019, averaged 21.5 points and 5.7 rebounds per game last season. Kawhi Leonard, George’s running mate in Los Angeles, is under contract through the 2021-22 season. The final year of Leonard’s contract features a player option.

In the last three seasons, since his departure from the Pacers, George has secured two All-Star Game nods. The former Fresno State standout enters the 2020-21 season at 30 years old.
